About Stargazer Glamping
Families, extended families, and couples – yes. Stag and hen groups, large single-sex groups, parties, dogs, and pets – no.
The Stargazer Glamping grounds are pretty enticing themselves, with all sorts of strolls and quiet corners, while 100 yards down the road is the South Herefordshire Golf Club (01989 780 535), as well as a beautiful fishing lake just beyond one of the fields. For something a bit more active, you're right on the doorstep of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty — it starts at the bottom of the hill — which is well set up for canoeing, wild swimming, fishing, walking, and cycling. There's plenty of information on the official website, including downloadable trails, but for just a taster of the area on foot you can pick up the spectacular Wye Valley Walk at nearby Ross-on-Wye (three miles west of the site) for valley climbs and riverside walks towards the historic border towns of either Monmouth or Hereford.
A quick, 1-mile drive southwest to the Forest of Dean offers plenty more walking, plus rock climbing, horse riding, mountain biking, and a Go Ape treetop adventure course. If you were going to hit just one destination here, make it Symonds Yat Rock (0300 0674800), where there are walking and cycling trails and stunning river views from the site of an ancient hill fort. This is also a great place to try and spot soaring birds of prey including peregrine falcons, sparrowhawks, goshawks, and buzzards. For more urban delights, you can't move for historic border towns in these parts, full of indie shops, ancient remains, medieval churches, and charming old pubs. Hereford remains delightfully under the radar – just half an hour's drive away – and boasts the world's oldest surviving medieval map, the Mappa Mundi, housed in Hereford Cathedral (01432 374200).
Food & Drink
The closest village shop — Lea Stores (01989 750458) — is in Lea, two miles south, which has groceries and a deli counter. There's a great local pub too, the award-winning Alma Inn at Linton (01989 720355), which is a handsome country tavern serving a good range of beers and ciders and excellent pub food. It's less than a mile from the site, but be warned — it's a stiff walk down one side of the valley and up the other. Also about a mile away, to the north, the Moody Cow at Upton Bishop (01989 780470) is a terrifically accomplished, Michelin-rated restaurant, with inventive menus strong on local and seasonal produce. Don't just turn up expecting to eat — book before you come. A bit further afield, there's also destination dining at the Lough Pool (01989 730888), a rustic charmer about eight miles west, or drive down to Symonds Yat to Ye Olde Ferrie Inn (01600 890232) for a slice of history – there's been a riverside inn here since the 15th century and it's a lovely place for a riverside walk and a ploughman's lunch. The nearest town, if you want to stroll the streets and pick a pub or a restaurant, is Ross-on-Wye, just three miles from the site.

Absolutely fantastic experience!!!
This place is absolutely out of this world! Every single thing has been thought of and taken care of. The tents are so cosy and so comfortable and the kitchen's are so well equipped. Dominic (the owner) makes sure you have everything you need. (He'll even take your luggage to your site with a little trailer!) They provide a wonderful little welcome hamper including bread, milk, orange juice, prosecco and fresh eggs and tea bags etc. You could come entirely empty handed and have everything you need! The setting is just beautiful. The views and surroundings are stunning and the grounds are great for having a stroll. There's bunnies and chickens and a badminton court. There's also a wonderful vegetable garden where you can pick some fresh veggies for your dinner. We planned to do so much on our holiday but all we wanted to do was stay at the site because it was so wonderful! Having a glass of prosecco and toasting marshmallows on the fire pit, keeping you warm (and the blankets they provide) then jumping in the hot tub and looking at the stars...it really was absolutely perfect!! I cannot fault one single thing about this place. It really is fantastic in every possible way and I cannot wait to book again to go back! Great for couples or for families! Would absolutely recommend!! 5 stars!! A massive thank you to the owners for making it such a magical wonderful experience for us!
What an amazing place. From the moment you pull up, Dominic cannot do more to help and show you round explaining everything. The "tent" itself is beautifully furnished and the beds are so comfy, the kitchen has everything you need, the shower is just perfect, there is nothing we could fault. The hot tub was lovely, views are fantastic, we just had a great time and felt so relaxed. It's also the personal touches - a bottle of prosecco, milk, bread, eggs, butter all left in a cool box in the kitchen and best of all....a home made cake which was just delicious. The honesty shop is a great help too for any little bits you might need and the communal area with a pizza oven is great. It really was a fantastic stay, made even nicer by Bonnie - their gorgeous dog having had pups which are just adorable which we had a cuddle with. We will definitely be back and will recommend to anyone so a huge thank you for making us feel so welcome.
This glamping experience exceeded all expectations. Every little detail and finishing touch you can tell has been so well thought out and there is absolutely nothing that the site doesn’t have .. the beds are super comfortable and warm, the kitchen has everything you might need, the many hammocks dotted around the site for star gazing at night or sunbathing during the day were perfect and the honesty shop is so well stocked with essentials. Let’s not forget the pizza oven cooking pizzas to complete perfection.. the location itself is also very beautiful with the sun setting across the field, the variety of trees with character making the place feel extra magical, especially at night. Dominic was the perfect host and our group is so grateful for his hospitality and a special stay. We will 10000% be back next year. Thank you !
I can only add to what others have already said. From the moment we arrived we felt like we were being cosseted. Helena met us on arrival and took our luggage to the tent with her little tractor and trailer. I say tent, it is more like a boutique hotel without solid walls. Comfy beds, luxurious sofas and rugs, towels and beautiful little lamps. Having done that she showed us the amazingly equipped outdoor kitchen, shower, composting toilet, fire pit and wood fired hot tub. These things were individual to each tent. Then it was on to the communal honesty bar and store where all your needs are catered for. This area contains the pizza oven which you are free to use. There are two further tents, one of which our friends had and the rest of the grounds are laid out with secret little areas to discover. Relaxing areas with chairs, beds or hammocks are dotted around the site. There is a fairy garden for the younger children, chickens roaming the site and rabbits in the run. A great area to explore and all lit up with solar lights in the evening. Our hosts delivered us logs to burn which I had great fun chopping. They even brought their 6 week old puppies over for the kids to see and play with. Dominic has great knowledge of the 250 trees in the garden and is happy to share. In reality I shouldn't be saying how wonderful this place is as it may then get fully booked and we desperately want to go again. But I have to be fair to Helena and Dominic. What they have achieved is superb and we will be back

Stargazer Glamping is located at Bromsash House, Bromsash, Ross-on-Wye, Herefordshire HR9 7PL
Satellite navigation will take you to Castrees plant Nurseries. (PLEASE do not ask for directions at Castrees Nurseries as they are getting too many requests).
Make sure the Nursery is on your LEFT hand side and drive 200 metres along the road and you will see a big cream house backing onto the road on your left side and the site gate is just past the house on the same side. Look out for the hanging White Star Sign.
If you are lost Just call me on 07825990166. Thanks Dominic
There's no public transport to the site. The nearest railway station is Gloucester, 15 miles away, and you'd have to take a taxi from there.
